Is it right for the Dashboard Tripometer Light to remain brightly lit even when the car is not in use, mine does this and it just seems odd that it should remain lit all night when I'm not using the car. Anyone know if this is right and why it is? :blink:

Hi, I just bought a Focus C-Max and have similar problem (the 'message centre' backlight stays on all the time, even with ignition off and key out) does anybody have the answer ?

On the MK2 Focus, dashboard illumination stays on for 10 minutes (i think?) after you lock the car. Can't comment on whether the CMax is the same.
